Many funders of international development programs use indicators as proxies for good public policies and the ability of countries to use aid well. As an input to these efforts, CGD's Global Health Indicators Working Group examined potential measures of a government's commitment to health with the goal of identifying and recommending a set of indicators for consideration by the Millennium Challenge Corporation and other donors as they assess country eligibility for investment. The consultation draft of the Working Group report, Measuring Commitment to Health (PDF), is now available online for input from the broader health and development community. Comments will be accepted through July 1st.
